This project assignment consists of a single topic, which is to start creating the main content of your professional portfolio.
In this assignment, you will start developing the content of your professional portfolio. You will select five high-stakes assignments from courses you took in your BSIT journey for inclusion in your professional portfolio. These are typically the Week 5 assignments in five courses of your choice. Also, you will provide the rationale for their relevance in demonstrating the skills required for your targeted job market as you identified in Week 1.
The criteria for selecting your five assignments are as follows.
- At least one (1) and at most four (4) high-stake assignments from Foundation ITS courses and Core courses.
- At most one (1) high-stake assignment from the Administrative Elective courses pool of courses:
- At least one (1) and at most four (4) high-stake assignments from the Elective pool of courses.
For each assignment in this part of the portfolio, you will prepare a 180-200 words summary, addressing:
- the objectives it serves
- why the piece is relevant
- rationale for its relevance in demonstrating the skills required for your targeted job market as you identified in Week 1
Note that if you have trouble in selecting high-stakes assignments for your portfolio, don’t hesitate to contact your IT Capstone instructor to seek assistance. Your IT Capstone instructor can guide you in your selection process, and will ultimately finalize and approve your selection of five high-stakes assignments that meet the above constraints.
Submission Details Create a single Microsoft Word document to compile the information for each assignment. Each assignment file will include: a summary, the assignment statement, and your work. If you already had abstracts in some of your assignments, you may reuse, or adapt those to compose the summaries. Remember that the summaries should be no longer than 180-200 words per assignment. If an assignment includes multiple files, you will package the assignment work as a folder named SU_ITS4103_W5_ Assignments_x_LastName_FirstInitial
Your assignments contents should be as you had them in the courses where you submitted the original work, but you may make some revisions to your work as explained in the assignment statement.
Package the five assignment files, or folders, into a single zip file. Name your zip file: BU_ITS4103_W3_Project_Portfolio_LastName_FirstInitial.
